@AudioSlavedSoul - The Last Stand came in 2nd. For almost the ENTIRE tournament, they had the lead.

Good Job everybody! Hope you all had fun.

If any of you have any comments, suggestions for next year, questions... Post them here.

After the awards last night, several of you and I were talking and i got a few good ideas from you for next year. Trust me when i say that if I am there net year, things will be changing again. This was my first time here and getting used to it. If Tracy, Michael and the Bands have no issue, I'd like to be the TD again for next year. I know a few of you stated that for the past few years, it has been a different TD each year. We need to get some stability going in this.

I have a few questions for you all:

1. What was your overall opinion on the tournament?
2. What can be changed to make it better?
3. What did you find was bad about it? (DO NOT say Calibration)
4. Did you like the new way of the Showmanship Award not being part of your main score?


Suggestions from last night (wow, just last night we were all there. now im back home in my bed in Arizona!)

- Minimum difficulty level. Hard/Expert only.
- Different location for the RB tournament. (In rooms like CoD was done)
- No Keys


If you have anything, Let me know! You all can get ahold of me on here as well as on FraggedNation.

Yes, that will be happening last year.

The deal with the wired is that we didnt notice until last second that the kit only came with 1 guitar. We had to have the wired brought in last second (day of) to be able to play. Next year, i plan on finding a way to get everything wireless.

I think this year's tournament was much better than the previous ones. Things ran more smoothly it seemed, and I think a lot of that was due to us working out details in the rules topic beforehand. It helped make sure that everyone was on the same page when we walked into the auditorium. I think the only issue was with switching the keyboards and vocals since one of the songs didn't have a keyboard part. That ate a little bit of time, but it was still entertaining to watch. Also I agree with notyetbreathing about the wired controllers, although I know that it was a last minute add-in from what you told us last night, but yeah, lol.

I also think that maybe the situation with the bands that won should have been handled differently. I understand the decision to combine us into a 5 member band so the majority of us wouldn't have 1st and 2nd place, but I think it should have been confirmed that everyone was going to get the same prizes first though. With all due respect to my girl Ishbo, the original drummer of our band should have received all his 1st place prizes, especially the signed copy of RB3, which is what he was excited about most (were all of them signed btw, or just mine?). I'm hoping that possibly CGS can do something to make that up to him, like get in touch with Harmonix and get another signed copy for him to have, since he really earned it.

But aside from that, I think you did a fine job as director, and would be thrilled to see you there again next year. Congrats again to everyone that played, it takes a lot to get up on that stage and play, so you all deserve congrats.

@Olson, you were absolutely amazing on bass girl, you did such a wonderful job and should be very proud of yourself. Look forward to seeing you and everyone else again next year!

Oh, and loved the shirt btw ;) Disappointed I didn't get a pic!

I do agree that things should and could have been handled differently. What i had in mind to happen and what actually happened are 2 completely different things.

I do have ways of correcting this issue for next year and i have already started a rough draft of the rules for next year. (I started it while the bands were playing. Issues the arose were noted and rules mended for next year)

Any suggestions at all to make it better, PLEASE let me know.

If we drop keys why not go back to Rock Band 2 possibly? Or even 1 if the majority thinks so. I think the set on RB3 was more suited to the keys and if we were dropping them why not go back to a more competitive one? Just a thought.

Also maybe someone have a poll next year...take the 10 most voted songs for the tourny and select them at random. To make sure not all "Impossible" tier songs get picked you cause poll it so that its 1 "Easier" song 1 mid sond and 1 hard song. Once again no huge deal...BUT sounds like it could be a fun way to chose to music.

Had a much better time this year than the past 3 years as far as kinks. There were song yes, but i think they were handled better and i truly have faith that if your the director next year it will go even better.

Keep the ideas coming. I'm keeping track of them all. Atleast this time, we have a full year to get this full system planned instead of just 2 and a half weeks. I'm used to running tournaments and ladders all the time with FN. However, for my first time doing LAN and CGS, i gotta admit, it went surprisingly well for almost no prep time. (2.5 weeks for rules and i arrived in Goldsboro around 11 PM Friday night)

So, i am not sure (as i said, first time doing this) how long this thread will be around. But, im a forum junkie. So, i have a thread going for comments, suggestions, questions and anything to do with Rock Band 2012. You have an idea to improve it? Post it here: http://www.carolinagamessummit.com/forums_topic.php?topicid=4664&page=1#4664

If the drummer wants I can mail him everything to him. I don't mind not having a prize for this touny. I wish everything was handled differently. There was poor communication. I spoke with the drummer and let him know to sign his name along with ours but he told me about a band that was gonna win instead of yours so it wasn't necessary. I told him just sign your name in case, but I guess he just didn't get to. I know next year to not sign up for this tournament. I am sorry for the drama. I did have fun nonetheless.

@The Real Lp

I know, but Im saying, had I been able to go..I would filled in as the guitarist for The last stand and we woulda won by a huge margin. Im a really good guitarist but college got in the way so I couldnt go this year.

You can count on me being there next year and winning the RB3 tourney:)

@Mistress_Ishbo

I think all of us were under the assumption that all 5 of us would recieve the first place prize package. I agree with Jo that The Real LP should be able to order a matching prize for the drummer. I really hope you come back next year. I enjoyed hanging out with you! By the way, my mom thinks that you and your fiance are simply delightful, and so do I! :) Please reconsider about coming back next year, because the drama wasn't your fault, or the drummer's! I think if he had walked up with us, he would've gotten the right prize. Also, most of the kinks should be worked out by next year. And think how much better we'll be by then! :) Once again congrats on your upcoming marriage, you two are so cute together! :)

@LP

I agree with punisherthe, could we maybe use RB2 instead? Because it's more focused on the four instruments, not the keys.

@Everyone

Thank you for the kudos on my performance. Keep in mind though, it was my first time competing, and as I still practice, I know I'll be better by next year :)
I hope everyone will remember to consider me as a potential band member when the time comes. :D

@Mistress_Ishbo

Well, if you're mailing all the First Place prizes back, shouldn't he mail you all the Second Place prizes? I don't think you should be left with nothing, you actually WERE in the second place band (XBand 360) and the band that got the secong place prizes were actually third and got bumped up to second. It's so confusing, but I'm sure it will all be better next year. :) I do hope you come back!

@ AudioSlavedSoul

Exactly where are you in RB standings anyway? I recently linked my game up and found out (VERY shockingly, mind you) that I'm in the top .5% of guitarists in the world... somewhere around 1500 away from numbero uno... and that was before i downloaded RB2 to RB3... so i can't wait to add those scores in as well... but either way, if we both show up next year, don't expect a free ride to first 'cause you're gonna be up against some serious competition.
